[applause] they do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. for they know that america moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all. our work must begin by making some basic decisions about our budget -- decisions that will have a huge impact on the strength of our recovery. over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion -- mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1 percent of americans. as a result, we are more than halfway

to call for higher taxes to pay for more and more government spending. i don't believe the president acknowledges or at least he didn't last evening, the seriousness of our debt and fiscal crisis. we are nearly $16.5 trillion in debt, and $6 trillion of that debt is from the president's spending over the last four years. and he now has four more years to go. yet rather than tell the american people specifically how he will reduce this unsteanlt debt he pulled out the same tired playbook and made it clear his basic fiscal plan is ever-higher taxes. an almost obsession with telling the american people you're not taxed enough. when we are taxed to death practically and when you add up not just the federal but the state and the local and the sales and the excise and the gasoline and the entertainment and all the other taxes that american people pay in their daily lives that cuts into their paycheck in a very significant way each week, the real question is, is the solution to our problem more taxes on the american people? mr. president, you got your taxes. in the fiscal cliff debate you h
